“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for Mankind”

I was a teenager when Man first walked on the moon. It bothers me that there are people out there in their 30’s who have never been alive when a human walked on another celestial body.

- Cordless power tools.
- Communications satellites
- Global Positioning Systems
All sorts of stuff were invented to fulfill the special needs of space exploration. All of these things are now part and parcel of our existence on Earth.
Well, except for Tang. Tang is as delicious as Ovaltine.
